Parthenolecanium persicae (Fabricius, 1776) 

Borg’s (1919) record of Lecanium nigrofasciatum Pergande  was a misidentification of P. persicae ( Ben-Dov et al., 2014)  . Borg (1932) recorded it (as Eulecanium persicae  ) as rare in Malta, on peaches and nectarine at Attard, Lija, Birkirkara, Sliema and other non-specified localities.
